Fantastic recycled plastic everyday products from EcoForce

Household chores like cleaning and laundry may not be fun but the least we can do is perform these essential tasks using recycled products that don’t harm the environment. Many everyday items are made from virgin materials when, in most cases, it is completely unnecessary. Recycled products do the job just as well, if not better, than counterparts made from ‘new’, helping to save energy, reduce landfill and preserve resources.

One such example of a company at the forefront of sustainable innovation is EcoForce – a range of everyday, practical and affordable household cleaning products made from recycled materials including: EcoForce Recycled Clothes Peg, Peg Basket and Clothes Line for eco-friendly laundry drying, EcoForce Recycled Sponges, Scourers, Dusters and Cloths for ‘green’ cleaning and EcoForce Recycled Food Bag Grips for storing left overs.

All products are designed and manufactured in the UK from high quality recycled waste and are not just 10%, 20% or 30% recycled but at least 90% made from recycled materials!

EcoForce Recycled clothes pegs are made from a revolutionary moulding process and an award-winning design using a single piece of recycled plastic making them more energy efficient to produce, strong, safe and durable. There are no springs to fly off and cause injury, no metal parts to rust and stain clothes nor will they fall apart in your hands! EcoForce pegs are so strong they can grip even in the windiest of weather and are almost impossible to break! They are frost-proof, UV stable and highly durable. Use with the EcoForce peg basket and EcoForce clothes line for the eco-friendly way to dry clothes this spring. You’ll save money on your energy bill and have a ‘clean’ conscious!

EcoForce’s scourers are also made from recycled PET. They come in heavy duty or non-scratch and are contoured for easy grip. EcoForce sponge scourers come from 100% recycled foam and each pack contains one sponge with a heavy duty scourer and one with a non-scratch scourer. EcoForce multi-purpose, super-absorbent cloths and dusters are made from high quality recycled waste materials.

A material like plastic has a short lifespan but can be recycled many times over thus reducing the need to use precious oil to make new plastic. We dutifully put out our recycling for kerbside collections but have you ever wondered what happens to the 15million plastic bottles we use every day? It’s a simple process – bottles are taken to a recovery facility where they are separated from other waste, cleaned, sorted by plastic type and colour then shredded, melted and moulded into plastic pellets which are purchased by companies to make ‘new’ products. EcoForce is a good example of how recycled plastic can be returned to the market in the form of a ‘new’ product which, in turn, can also be recycled.

Daniel Neumann of EcoForce explains: “We live in a world of finite resources and this is not going to change. Making recycled plastic uses 70% less energy than making virgin plastic, helps reduces landfill and preserves resources. It makes plain common sense to use recycled products for everyday tasks, especially if these products really work – as the EcoForce range does – and are priced the same as competitive products. EcoForce is committed to bringing affordable, usable recycled items to the general public and is determined to help you run a greener home without it costing the earth.”

EcoForce is widely available throughout major supermarkets, B & Q, Homebase, Oxfam, Dunelm Mill or Ocado on line. So when you’re spring cleaning your home this year make sure you go green!

I use baking soda to remove those strange smells coming from my fridge, it’s also a great odor-eliminator for my carpets. Just sprinkle on a little baking soda to soak up some of those odors and then vacuum it up.

Here’s a handy and effective way to clean a burnt pan that I’ve found works wonders.

Simply pour in some biological washing powder – add warm water and leave to soak for a couple of hours.

Then, clean out with a sponge and the pan should be good as new.

You should find this simple tip works for you, time and again, giving you spotless and clean pans with none of the hassle of hours of hard scrubbing!

My best buy ever is a special sponge that cleans everything and it has no chemicals. I don’t know whether I can mention the brand. It gets pen marks off everything, sticky fingers off the walls puts a shine on the hob and I use them to clean the floor as they get the door scrap marks off. It is magic.

buy and use a heated clothes drier instead of the tumble dryer. These are available on most auction websites and run at about 1p a minute. A massive saving and really space saving too. great for flats and great for the pocket!

Use vinegar, best and safest way to clean so many things. Leave dishes to soak in water before washing up, it wont need much washing up liquid if any once the muck is softened.

My top green cleaning tip is using lemons to clean the microwave – I often end up with a few lemons in the fruit bowl that are past their best, and this is a great use for them.
Simply cut the lemons into quarters and place in a microwave safe bowl in the microwave, fill the bowl with cold water and microwave the ‘mixture’ on high for four minutes. leave to stand for two minutes, carefully remove the bowl and then wipe the interior of the microwave with a damp cloth. Thanks to the effects of the ‘lemony steam’ even stubborn ground in stains will left clear away!

Make up a spray with 50% vinegar and 50% cold water, then add half a teaspoon of washing up liquid and shake well. Use a microfibre cloth to polish.

We always keep a bottle of white vinegar as it has many cleaning uses and is great for getting rid of the faint limescale marks left in hard water areas without the need for expensive cleaning preparations.

To be honest, just plain water on a damp cloth is great for dusting. Bicarb of soda for smells, and cleaning some stubborn stains, and vinegar is great for cleaning windows and mirrors.

Use old socks to dust with – one on each hand and you can do two surfaces at once.

when cleaning your tiles take any citrus fruit, like orange or grapefruit are good as they are fairly large, slice directly in half, place down in a plate of salt: then use it to rub on your tiles or bath, shower screens etc. This is great, the citric acid cuts grease, the salt is naturally abrasive and will remove grot, limescale, dirt and even spots of mould. the other bonus is that your bathroom will have a natural fruit smell with no nasties.

I follow the tips from “How Clean is Your House” and use organic, household items to clean. This includes Bicarb of Soda, lemon juice and Baking Soda when cleaning the kitchen and bathroom. I also use newspapers to help clean my windows and then I recycle them

Soapods / soapnuts are so cheap and green for the laundry and you can boil them up to make a liquid that will clean lots of things including yourself. Just remember to tell the family that it is no soup. (yep my son thought it was funny soup lol.)

I love bicarbonate of soda. A saucer of it placed in the fridge, in a newly painted room or anywhere there’s an unpleasant smell, will get rid of the smell in a jiffy. Great for shaking in whiffy trainers as well. Just sprinkle it in, leave overnight then shake or vacuum out.

Dry your clothes outside wherever possible. Shake out the item before you hang it on the line and spread it out as much as possible, then fold it when you pick it in. This tends to reduce the need for the time- and-energy-consuming-exercise of ironing
